Wings to the Mind

Wings to the Mind
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

- Plato

I have just finished cleaning up after dinner and am now sitting on the couch, with the window wide open as it is still so light and warm. Someone is playing Bocelli and I can hear the beautiful music playing in the background, drowning out the other distant noises of traffic and voices. It feels relaxed and poetic and makes me inspired to write something, anything really, just put thoughts into some sort of physical form. To make them tangible.

Music often does that to me. It evokes something from deep within my soul, it is in many ways my muse. It can also be a source of company, like tonight when everyone else in my family is busy downstairs with other things, or when I go on long walks in the park. From alternative to light jazz, opera and rap, I love all forms of music.

If my life could have a soundtrack, I wonder what it would be?
